Purchasing a new or refurbished kitchen appliance is a lot like buying a new car or a new appliance: you’ll have to find a trusted repair shop, and if you can afford it, they’ll likely provide you with a free quote.
But for the most part, you’ll be better off finding a trusted home or garage repair shop first.
If you can’t afford the repair, you can still get the best bang for your buck with a trusted manufacturer.
Here’s how to find them and how to choose the right brand.
When you’re looking to purchase a new food appliance, the most important thing to consider is the size of the dishwasher and the weight of the kitchen utensil, so it’s important to choose a dishwasher that is at least 25 per cent larger than the average kitchen appliance.
However, this doesn’t mean that you’ll always have to choose between a large and a small dishwasher, or between two dishwashers.
Instead, the biggest factors that determine which dishwasher is best for you are the dimensions of the washing machine and the overall size of your kitchen.
If the dishwasher you’re considering has a maximum capacity of 10 litre, it’s probably better to get a dishwashing machine that’s 25 per 100 litres.
The bigger the dish, the more powerful it is, so the bigger the capacity.
For example, if you have a dish with a capacity of 5 litre and the average size of a large dishwasher (5.5 litre), you’ll probably want to get the larger capacity.
If your kitchen has a capacity between 2.5 and 3 litre you’ll want to consider getting a larger dishwasher.
However if the dish you’re choosing to buy has a diameter of less than 1 centimetre, then you’ll likely be better with a larger, dishwasher with a maximum volume of up to 6 litre.
If a smaller dishwasher can’t handle your dishwasher’s capacity, you might want to look into a smaller, more energy-efficient dishwasher for smaller dishes.
